Golden Investigators: Luis and Noami

Hey Everyone,

 It's been another crazy week. But the best part was the lesson we had with Luis and that Noami came to church yesterday. The lesson this week with Luis was great. He's a young single adult and lives with his roommate, and he's a super intelligent guy that works on computers and delivers seafood. It was super easy to teach him because...I don't know... he just understood. We taught the plan of salvation and the Atonement and we brought a member Ricardo a young man the same age as him. We were able to read a lot of scriptures from the Book of Mormon and the Bible with him because we knew that he would understand what they meant. Ricardo was able to read him the Alma the younger conversion story to help him understand the purpose of the atonement and bore a marvelous testimony. I really touched Luis's heart. We invited him to baptism and he accepted a date for the 28th of April. Church attendance for him may be difficult because he works in the early mornings, but I think he will make an effort to prepare and learn. It was one of the most spiritual lesson I've been a part of so far in my mission. But on Sunday, Noami came to church, we weren't able to teach her, but she committed to come to church as a member when to pick her up. She enjoyed the Gospel Principles class as they taught about Christ and his purpose as our Savior and what it means to us specifically. She made a lot of friends and the Relief Society President was able to give her a ride home. Just perfect! Things are looking up and we are counting all the tender mercies we've seen so far.
"Prayer is not the substitute for work; it is a sometimes desperate effort to work further and to be efficient beyond the range of one's own powers. It is not the lazy who are most inclined to prayer ; those who pray most, who care most, and who have worked hard, find it intolerable to be defeated"
